      Having been a boss all my life - go play or do anything that is not about the company or anyone to do with the company.  I used to go fishing on my own.

        also agree, walk away from it for a bit, clear the head so to speak.

    Never truly not working  because people will always contact you...personally would like a cave in a remote area ...nice and warm...not into roughing it...and pleasant company...no electricity smile

      getting bugged while you try to have sometime alone, that's one thing i don't like. makes me don't wanna give colleagues my number. unfortunately, though, it's something that is required of both bosses and employees.

    Go work out, or check to see how everyone is doing and if they need anything.

      That's the first thing I try to avoid.

            Oh, ok, gotcha. A "meeting"

            That's like my, "I got a thing."

          a boss won't likely do that... i mean owners. they simply can't waste money. but lazy managers might see "calling for a meeting" an alternative for getting totally unproductive.

            It's not that their lazy, it's just that they don't care.

              yeah, the right term is they don't care. Doesn't often happen, though.

            ...no not lazy...when you manage and/or as well when you own the biz, work doesn't leave your mind for long...and usually you work odd and many hours; not 9 to 5.....so taking a break when it's needed is okay to refresh yourself....it's not a waste of money....and the break is not 'totally unproductive' .....so i just go to a 'meeting'.....

            guess you haven't been a boss before.

              i see your point. when work seems too much to handle for a time and the brain doesn't keep up at all, a break is necessary. that's why vacation leaves exist... in some cases though, there are managers who waste time (money) even while in the workplace. that's one reason why firing happens...

          I used to have those meetings, too. I called them "off-site" meetings.

    I go away...no cell phone service, no WIFI service, nothing.  Zilch.  It's a undisclosed location and I don't return until I'm ready to.  What I do there...chill.  smile

    Oh, when I can't get away, I stay in the forums until I can't take anymore.  lol  (that doesn't happen...which causes a bit of a problem......)  smile

    I used to have a boss who would leave for an extended lunch time with her husbands brother... she ended up losing her husband and job!

    Being a so called "boss" I can tell you that unfortunately, what you "feel" like doing very rarely enters into it.
